Spaces: A Poetry Workshop

January 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Cathedral logo header

Space is not mere absence. The spaces we inhabit range from connecting to enclosed; sacred, working, commercial or domestic; inner or outer; loose or tight, liminal or even lost. Poetry, too, is a form characterised by its use of space alongside the written word.

In this workshop we will focus on the impact that spaces in our environment make on us, and the effects we create on the page with poetic ‘white space.’ There will be the opportunity to move around the different spaces embraced within the Cathedral’s walls as well as to explore the use of space in our writing.

You do not have to be an experienced poet to take part in this workshop. Just come willing to explore where words may take you.
